Future opportunities

An A-level qualification in French provides a suitable foundation for the study of French at university. Increasingly French is combined with other subjects at university to provide an extra dimension to one’s studies, for example, in business and management. It can also lead to the study of other languages such as Russian, Chinese or Japanese. Organisations are often looking for candidates with additional skills and having a good knowledge of another language could be part of that skills set.
